The need for faster and more powerful data transmission technologies requires the synchronization capabilities of next generation Timing Signal Generators from Microsemi. Building Integrated Timing Supplies, also known as Sync Supply Units, distribute precise frequency and time so voice, video and data traffic are transported reliably and efficiently. The BITS/SSU hardware foundation is essential for the distribution of synchronization signals to support sync interfaces on central office transmission equipment including new Synchronous Ethernet platforms, as well as housing advanced server blades supporting carrier-class NTP and IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocols.
All clocks in a synchronization network must be referenced, or traceable, to a Primary Reference Source. Microsemi’s GPS Primary Reference Sources (PRSs), also known as “master clocks,” provide the highest level of time and/or frequency accuracy. PRSs are categorized by the source that is used to derive their timing outputs: GPS (Global Positioning System), Cesium (atomic clock), or Packet PRS (IEEE 1588 PTP).
Microsemi’s comprehensive portfolio of IEEE 1588 servers and clients provides the highest level of reliability and performance available. All IEEE 1588 servers incorporate true “carrier class” features such as redundant power supplies, redundant clock cards and port bonding to guarantee the five-nines (99.999%) reliability and uninterrupted service demanded by equipment manufacturers and network service providers worldwide. This high level of reliability, combined with high performance and FPGA-based packet time stamping, makes Microsemi IEEE 1588 servers the gold standard for providing precise timing and synchronization over next generation, packet-based IP networks.
Carrier grade NTP/PTP solutions bring high precision, high availability, security, robust management and easy infrastructure integration to communications service providers that want to bring to managed IP the same high levels of quality assurance consumers expect in the circuit switched environment.
Microsemi’s next generation of GPS NTP/PTP network time synchronization products with atomic clock accuracy ensure that time is synchronized and accurate throughout your IT enterprise network. Our NTP time servers protect network log file accuracy, security, billing systems, electronic transactions, database integrity, VoIP, and many other essential applications. Our GPS NTP Network Appliances make it easy to manage and monitor time synchronization through workstations, servers and routers, thus assuring the highest integrity throughout the network.
The growth of reliable networks requires intelligent management tools that are powerful and dependable. Microsemi’s TimePictra network management platform provides carrier class control and visibility of the entire end-to-end sync network. TimePictra software is designed from the ground up using scalable, modular architecture to keep pace with the growth and evolution of networks. Fault and remote management, network configuration, performance monitoring and security management capabilities are all available via a highly visual, map-based interface.
